Native New Yorker raised in San Juan. Graduate of the University of Puerto Rico (Rio Piedras campus) in Comparative Literature and Modern Languages. I studied German at Escuela Hotelera de San Juan (and one on one, with the great Ute Spengler). My writing and photography work have appeared in local, national and overseas publications (books and magazines) both in print and online, and has been exhibited in Seattle, San Francisco and Puerto Rico Multilingual certified (WA State) professional spoken language interpreter and translator for over 25 years. I organize and host not-for-profit literary, culinary and photography focused gatherings at my downtown Seattle home. My life revolves around travel, photography, literature, language, the performing arts, coffee culture, 'Mochi' our Maine Coon cat, and stand up paddle boarding whenever and wherever I can.
